A Head to Head to Start the Year

From The House, 10:35 pm on 7 February 2017

The Prime Minister’s Statement debate is the usual way to begin the year in the House, but in an election year it has a heightened significance and extra purpose, providing the first coordinated chance for each political party to outline their election message.

In this edition of The House we bring highlights from the Prime Minster and the Leader of the Opposition.
